Topa’s values include personal attention, tailor-made support, sustainable relationships, and actively protecting the interests of their partners.
From the distribution centre in Tiel, they supply the whole of the Netherlands and Belgium, often with next-day delivery (with EazyStock’s help).
Topa started using EazyStock through a connection to their Visma ERP system. They have since changed to Microsoft 365 Business Central, so the switch was made using EazyStock’s ready-made connector, which saved a lot of time and removed a lot of challenges.
Bryan van Ingen has been with Topa for a long time and knows the processes like no other. Before they used EazyStock to predict sales and generate purchase orders, Topa mainly used Excel. Due to the challenges of using Excel, Topa started looking for software that would contribute to productivity. They also wanted to be able to work proactively instead of reactively and optimise their business processes.
EazyStock has lived up to Bryan’s expectations. “EazyStock is easy to use and very clear,” Bryan says. “It’s nice that you can set up the pages yourself; this ensures you see the right information.“
“The EazyStock team has guided us well; I have always experienced the cooperation as very pleasant.“
“Right now, we use EazyStock daily. Often, in the morning, for an hour, to place the purchase orders; the rest of the day, our buyer is busy with a new assortment. EazyStock has freed up a lot of time to keep developing,” says Bryan.
Another key benefit since implementing EazyStock is that while Topa has reduced the amount of stock they hold, they have increased turnover. This is because EazyStock enables more accurate demand forecasts and replenishment strategies, so they hold more of the right stock they know will sell.
Before EazyStock’s implementation, there were two buyers at Topa. One of these positions is now vacant, but with EazyStock, the role is changing. With more efficient inventory management processes, the second buyer will have the time to focus mainly on supplier negotiation and development to maintain growth.
Topa will work with SucceedIT to improve efficiencies to save more time and money to help Topa’s continued growth.
